Pulling the pieces together

I managed to finish my third rosette for La Pass, and connect all three finished rosettes together. The joining requires concentration and it focuses my attention away from all my other stresses. Sometimes when life is stressful, I need to do some mindless stitching like making string blocks, but right now, this intense work is really helping to steady me.

I'm a little mad at my phone's camera, there whas a huge difference in half an f stop....my first shot washed out the yellow ring entirely, and this one made the background murky. I really need to think about getting a real camera.....
